A young entrepreneur began this journey way back in 1978 in a bylane of Janjikar Street Crawford Market, Mumbai. The very fact of a humble beginning with big dreams in the eyes and determination to realise them has reached to a conglomerate company known to all as Akbar Travels of India …and the journey is still continuing.
The man Mr. K.V. Abdul Nazar, with his exemplary qualities such as dreaming big, planning with strong determination, hard work, taking the people together and working with the single mindedness of the purpose of achieving big dreams has ultimately achieved phenomenal growth for Akbar Group. He is an individual with never say die spirit. From the beginning, the emphasis was on rendering quality services to the customers. Those who once avail the service of the company, cherishes for long rich experience.
From modest beginning, Akbar Travels of India went on to become the leading consolidator / wholesaler in India and earned the reputation and trust of individual passengers, corporates and travel agents alike. The travel business is not restricted to only sale of tickets, the ticket serves as the means to several other ancillary and auxiliary services which provides income to the Akbar Group. The services like foreign exchange, travel insurance, holiday packages, visa, travel documentation etc form the very base of the travel agents existence. As is in every business enterprise, to limit oneself is to restrict ones growth. In the case of Mr. Nazar, the horizon was limitless and the hunger to expand knew no boundaries. Starting with just one Head Office in Mumbai and about twenty branches in cities like Mangalore, Cochin, Trivandrum, Chennai etc, the company went on to spread its wings in other major metros like Delhi, Kolkata, Jalandhar, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Lucknow etc. From once having just one office in each major city, the Akbar Group now has two to three branches in every major city of the country. Since the year 2005, the Akbar Group decided to expand overseas and started the Middle East operations from three offices in the United Arab Emirates, we now have seventeen offices in the UAE and other ten offices located in Gulf like Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Doha and Muscat.
